Conflicting Messages or I'm Not Understanding Something

Hi,

(vSphere Essentials 7.0.3 with 2 hosts)

A few weeks ago I changed my root password, but today I saw this alert when logging in:

Yet my vCenter Server Management says my password is good much longer than that.

Could this alert be talking about the individual esxi hosts' root password, because it doesn't provide more details and I don't see an alert on either of those. 

Thanks,

Jeff

Can you check in vCenter for which entity you are seeing the password expiration under alarms?

THAT'S what I wasn't understanding: That there was no link to take me to more details about the message but I had to know where else to look. Indeed, It was an old message that I wrongly assumed would be cleared once I changed the credentials.

Thanks!

Jeff
